This event will not have the Am in it as there won’t be any amateur players. The COVID changes also will include playing two golf courses, Pebble Beach Golf Links and Spyglass Hill Golf Course, instead of the usual three, and the cut will be 36 holes instead of 54.
Last Year’s Pebble Beach Recap
In last year’s tournament, someone that wasn’t an American won here for the first time in 15 years as Nick Taylor outlasted Phil Mickelson in the final group and Kevin Streelman’s push to win. There have only been four Pebble Beach winners that were not Americans, Bruce Crampton, Brett Ogle, and Vijay Singh.
The field of 156 includes golfers who won the FedExCup Brandt Snedeker, Bill Haas, and Jordan Spieth. Spieth is actually coming back into his game lately as is Jason Day, who finished fourth in the Pebble Beach last year.
Last Week’s Betting Recap
The Waste Management Phoenix Open
Webb Simpson (13/1) – Tie 42nd Place.
Daniel Berger (18/1) – Missed Cut
Sam Burns (65/1) – Tie 22nd Place.
Rory McIlroy (10/1) – Tie 13th place.
In last week’s Phoenix Open, we took a chance on Rory McIlroy in his first time playing in this PGA Tour event. It paid off to some extent as he seemed to figure out the golf course by the last round when he shot a 64.
Sam Burns was our longshot bet and had a hiccup in his third round shooting 73 in an otherwise great tournament. Berger disappointed and Webb Simpson spent the entire tournament trying to recover from an opening 73.
Pebble Beach Pro-Am Futures Odds
The Pebble Beach Pro-Am Golf Futures Picks are some players who are consistently near the top when they play on this epic golf layout with a storied history. Make sure to check out all the Pebble Beach odds.
Jordan Spieth – 20/1 at BetUS.com
Spieth loves playing at Pebble Beach with a win in 2017 and five top 10s in his 10 tournament appearances. Last week his irons were on point at the Waste Management Phoenix Open and that should stay consistent this week.
Spieth has had problems with his driver so being able to hit less than that often at Pebble Beach will be a plus for him playing here. His putter seems to be back and that’s what is key with him if you can remember his streaks of major wins and play at the top of his game. It always seemed if a putt was 10 feet or under he would make it. If he can do that he can win here and pay off your golf bets in a big way.
Jason Day – 17/1
Day hasn’t won here but he’s come close many times. He has finished in the top 15 nine times including three fourth-place finishes, a tie for fifth, and a tie for second place in 2018.
Kevin Streelman – 32/1
The Pebble Beach Pro-Am futures give you a good shot at Streelman winning because he loves playing here and has had recent success. He finished in second place last year, and that was the third time in a row he finished in the top 10 at Pebble. He has five consecutive finishes in the top 20, so prop bets to finish top 10 and 20 are a must.
Streelman finished in a tie for 22nd place at the Phoenix Open, shooting four rounds in the 60s. His approach game was excellent, and he gained an amazing 6½ strokes on the field last week in tee-to-green statistics. His recent play lines up with his love of playing Pebble Beach.
Brendan Steele – 50/1
Steele led the entire field last week in strokes gained off the tee gaining over a stroke a round on the field. His putter was missing last week,which cost him a better finish than tied for 30th, but it should be on hit this week. He will be putting on poa annua greens and that is his preference.
